Top 10 Mario Kart Characters that Disappeared from the Series

This list will feature characters that have at least one appearance in the series but have been (or were) absent for awhile.

The Top Ten

1 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

Why did he disappear? - darthvadern

Diddy was a fan favorite in double dash and Wii. He unfortunately got the short end of the stick in Mario Kart 8 and deluxe. However he has a high chance of coming back

Poor Diddy. He's in Smash, why can't he be in Mario Kart? - Drawbox

2 Birdo Birdo

Same situation as Diddy. She was a fan favorite who was sacrificed in Mario Kart 8 and deluxe for baby characters metal characters and koopalings in the Mario Kart 8 and deluxe roster. Her return is very likely

Birdo is my favourite mario character of all time, and then she just dissapeared, I understabbd Mario Kart7, but why didn't she come back to Deluxe? And that clone Dry Bones is still appearing! - darthvadern

Is it because she's technically transgender? I wonder (I think she's awesome)
If you don't believe me look it up - Masochismismagic

3 Donkey Kong Jr.

Appeared in one game and that's it - darthvadern

He was in Super Mario Kart and was never seen or even mentioned in any game since. A return would be very unlikely at this point

4 Funky Kong Funky Kong

Well he was obscure so there is that - darthvadern

He only was in Wii and has yet to return. He’s in the Same boat as Petey, his return is unlikely but possible

5 Petey Piranha Petey Piranha

Sadly - darthvadern

He was only seen in double dash and was unfortunately canceled from Mario Kart Wii. A return seems unlikely but possible

6 Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

He was brought back in Deluxe - darthvadern

He was absent in the original Mario Kart 8 which made people mad and rightfully so. He should have been in with the koopalings but thankfully Nintendo put him in deluxe

7 R.O.B. R.O.B.

Such a cool character - darthvadern

Only seen in DS and he wasn’t a bad character but his return is very unlikely because he’s not really a Mario character

8 King Boo King Boo King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

He was brought back in Deluxe - darthvadern

King Boo was absent for awhile but thankfully he returned in deluxe.

9 Dry Bones Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

He was brought back in Deluxe - darthvadern

Appeared in DS and Wii and was absent until he returned in Deluxe.

10 Paratroopa Paratroopa

His only appearance was in double dash and he was unfortunately canceled from Mario Kart Wii.

Eh, I think it's a good thing he never returned, he's just a koopa clone - darthvadern
